AFRICA: Survey findings on human rights awareness among children

This report is the outcome on questionnaires prepared for a study on the rights of children.
On July 6, 2015, the interns from the University of Ghana (UG-Legon) at the Young Heart Foundation (YHF) together with our supervisor, Mr. John Atopi Thompson (Coordinator-YHF) conducted a survey on issues related to Human Rights with key interest on the rights of children. The survey targeted children between the ages of 8-16 years. The survey lasted for four (4) days.
The survey was motivated by YHF long standing objective to form Human Right Clubs for Basic School Children in Madina and its environs. The survey was therefore conducted to provide knowledge on how far school children know their rights and their understanding on basic human rights.
